Finding a Better Way for Zora

Dick and Donna Johnson came to NC State Veterinary Hospital after their dog Zora was diagnosed with cancer. Zora's NC State medical team, led by Tracy Gieger and Michael Nolan, came up with a treatment plan that allowed the family to enjoy more time with her. To show their appreciation, the Johnsons have made a gift to the College of Veterinary Medicine’s Radiation Oncology Research Fund, which supports work to advance the science of cancer treatment.
